Rural Roots, Urban Dreams: A Farmer’s son rise as a Software Developer Engineer with Geekster  

Nitin Kumar, Software Development Engineer (SDE)

New Delhi (India), September 14: Nitin Kumar, a young man from remote Uttar Pradesh, has recently secured the lucrative position of Software Development Engineer (SDE) at a reputed IT company. While this achievement may seem ordinary to many in urban areas, the story behind Nitin’s success is a testament to his unwavering determination, his humble origin from a small village, and his journey of overcoming countless obstacles.  

Growing up in a family of farmers in the village of Hathmana, UP, Nitin’s path to becoming an SDE wasn’t easy. Initially, he pursued a degree in Mechanical Engineering, but even after the support from his parents, Nitin Kumar faced the classic problem that several STEM students often face after graduation: a lack of opportunities in the core field. Moreover, his village lacked the essential internet connectivity required to attend the online classes of the renowned tech-upskilling platform Geekster, of which Nitin was an alumnus. Even after so many struggles, his passion for learning was so much so that he embarked on a daily 10-kilometre journey to access internet connectivity and acquire the skills necessary for his dream job. Nitin’s story serves as an inspiration to other learners at Geekster as students who come from remote backgrounds and aspire to make a mark in the fiercely competitive realm of software engineering and the IT industry.   

Nitin took the definitive decision to foray into the IT domain when he stumbled upon the industry-immersive Geekster’s program on YouTube and decided to enroll in the course. About his experience at Geekster, the candidate said, “I am thrilled to have landed this great opportunity, and the credit goes to the hard work of the mentors at Geekster who have handled my journey into coding and programming languages. Coming from a non-CS background, I faced many challenges in the beginning, but the extensive yet easy-to-understand material and the in-depth classes that walk you through the program from scratch helped immensely. The mentors at Geekster were very supportive and were often happy to guide you one-on-one. I benefited immensely from these guidance sessions, especially because the instructors went beyond the live classes and also shared their insights on soft skills that are essential to thrive in the industry.” 

He continued, “Geekster helped me become more confident and presentable as a professional as it gave me the scope to go through unlimited mock interviews, helping me brush up my technical knowledge as well as get confident in my communication skills. I am glad to have been part of the Geekster family, especially because it gave me the chance to learn from industry veterans who have seen and continue to study the major trends in the IT industry from up close.” 

Nitin Kumar’s remarkable success is not an isolated case at Geekster. The platform has consistently witnessed talented learners from small cities and towns, like Nitin, achieving great heights in the software industry. These inspiring stories motivate Geekster to continuously enhance its programs and support, believing that talent transcends geographical boundaries.
